The book Allegiance: The Life and Times of William Eustis (Riverhaven Books, 2021) by Tamsen Evans George creates the vivid portrait of William Eustis, a patriot witness to and participant in many of the major events that shaped American history from the Revolution to the country’s fiftieth anniversary.
During his public lifetime, William Eustis needed no introduction. He trained as a doctor under Joseph Warren, defeated John Quincy Adams for a seat in Congress, and he served in the cabinet and as an ambassador under James Madison.
A witness to the rebellion in Boston, Eustis, became a military surgeon during the American Revolution and a close friend of Aaron Burr.
